M.Sc. in Medicinal Chemistry Offers candidates a platform for exploring the various dimensions related to this field so as to learn more about the interaction between chemistry and the living organisms.
Medicinal Chemistry requires a thorough understanding of molecules, their structures, properties and synthesis, but it also demands the chemical understanding of the nature of biological structures, from macromolecules to cells, the design of pharmaceutical materials in the laboratory and their function in clinical settings.
The work of developing new drugs to treat diseases begins with the medicinal chemist. The medicinal chemistry is an exciting and rapidly developing science concerned with the chemistry underpinning the design, discovery and development of new pharmaceuticals.
In this program, you will build on your undergraduate degree in pharmacy, chemistry, biology, or related field with thorough knowledge of the behavior of chemical substances at the molecular level.
The medicinal chemistry program can brings together the disciplines of chemistry and pharmacology in the design, synthesis and analytically examine drug compounds, as well as, development of pharmaceutical drugs.
The knowledge and skills acquired in the course will leave graduate well equipped to compete for positions related to “drug discovery” in chemical, pharmaceutical or biotechnological companies.
This program is devoted to the education and training of students to become creative and independent investigators for position in universities, corporate laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries and hospitals.
The holder of an MSc in medicinal chemistry is able to:
